Earlier this year, DC rapper Lightshow released If These Walls Could Talk 2, a follow-up to his 2015 mixtape. He recently performed at a big show with friends at The Fillmore Silver Spring, and Chris Castillo got some pictures.
Lightshow has released a string of mixtapes since 2011 through 86 America, the label he owns. He first gained prominence when Wale invited him to rap on a song, “Georgetown Press” on Wale’s album Folarin.
In 2014, Lightshow released The Way I See It, and in 2016 he dropped Life Sentence 3.
